Kate Bush, nice

@Kat, Pitchers and Catchers report today, you can almost feel the warmth on your face, the smell of BBQ, the thwack of ball against glove, marvellous

I would have been SO mad at me if I had missed KaTe! Hi Irene and THANKS
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:13pm kat330:

Quite literally "a head of the game." ;) Your fellow Brit, AndrewC left the "mask a pony" pun re: the horsemeat lasagna's cheese last Friday before noon on Schulkind's list. Couldn't have been but a few minutes after that the same pun was delivered by Mark Kermode in the podcast portion of the Mayo/Kermode BBC-5 Live film reviews. My how fast wit moves around the Kingdom!
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:15pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Kat, you listen to Mayo Kermode, awesome, one of my favourite weekly podcasts

and why is sean upside down in his photos?

@Kat - oooooh yeah, better believe it :)
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:19pm kat330:

@Sean: Except for a few weeks when it was for some reason blocked from our Inet Radio, I listen to it live, thus always arriving to GTDS at 11 am or later. I d/l the podcast just to hear the bits before and aft.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:21pm DCE:

well hey now folks! some Chick Corea in the house? nice!
  Mon. 2/11/13 12:22pm ?:

That was a great Kate Bush song!

Oh, hey, Happy Year of the Snake, everyone! (Maybe that'll remind you to stop writing "Dragon" on all your checks now. ;)

Hi TruKeepers! Trying to get settled in for the afternoon. Glad you're all here.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:23pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Glenn, for some reason the photo that I took with the I phone came out upside down, not sure how to rectify this
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:24pm kat330:

Two great "Chicks" in a row . Stellar.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:24pm Parq:

This Chick Corea sounds just like the weather in metro NYC today.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:29pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Ooh, can I share my excitement with my fellow listeners but Todd Rundgren is playing in Bristol in June, just got my ticket. As you might know I do have a soft spot for him,
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:31pm kat330:

@glenn: Just FYI, unless you were on earlier under a different handle, I found your first comment on a 7SD playlist was 1.19.2011.

@Parq: Curiously enough, my first find of you on 7SD coincided with my very first post there (minus the "330") on 12.12.2007. Philo was even earlier on 9.5.2007. Yep, I did some researchin' over the weekend with some free time I had.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:31pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Lovely to hear this track again from Aaron Parks, Irene,
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:32pm kat330:

@Sean: That's really mollusk, congrats! I'm still moping because it's now highly unlikely we'll get tix for Leonard Cohen in Louisville, on my birthday no less. :/

digging the set so far
  Mon. 2/11/13 12:41pm Michiel:

I love listening to your terrific shows.

Thank you for making them. :)
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:48pm kat330:

I'd star this for Minnie's voice, but I'm having some trouble with the arrangement, background vocals, etc. Just IMO.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:54pm Parq:

Ah, something for me to star. Is that "SDTK" designation an error, or was there a movie version of Company?
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:55pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Favouriting a song on the app is dead easy but I am trying on my pc, no luck, click on the star, right?
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:56pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, I guess it should just be the title of the album.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:57pm Parq:

Sean, I have sometimes had trouble "favorite-ing" a track while it's in play. Wait for the next track and try starring this one again.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:58pm kat330:

Oh, Irene, finally saw "Searching for Sugar Man" yesterday. What a perfectly put together piece! Wide smiling during his S Africa ovation and joyful in many places. The frames of Rodriguez walking in the snow had us thinking of all you NE-ers.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 12:59pm Parq:

I was working the dollar LP table at the Record Fair one year. A young woman with an armload of finds told me she had gotten every Orig. Cast album she wanted except "Company". I told her, "Keep looking." Ten minutes later, she triumphantly held up a dollar copy of the Company OC album.
Avatar Mon. 2/11/13 12:59pm Lonious Monk:

hello Irene. this is just perfect show.
thank you so much.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:01pm Parq:

Kat, I agree with you on the Rodriguez doc. I've been calling it a combination of "Anvil - the Story of Anvil", "Buena Vista Social Club" and "The Grapes of Wrath."
  Mon. 2/11/13 1:02pm Andy S.:

Elaine Stritch...makes me itch. Actually, I'd prefer to hear Rahsaan Roland Kirk play the stritch.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:04pm kat330:

That's very astute, Parq. Yep, we both immediately likened it to the sort of build to triumph/joy as "Anvil," having been the one of those more recently viewed.
Avatar Mon. 2/11/13 1:05pm uuee:

So, Irene,
Someone wasn't watching the grammys, but watched "The Great American Dream Machine", with Elaine Stritch doing a horrible rendition.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:07pm kat330:

Damn, Irene, making me wish to be in Rio for Carnival! Or somewhere warm and festive IAE. :)
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:08pm Parq:

uuee, my dad was the lighting director for a number of the studio segments on G-A-D-M. I don't know whether or not he lit the Elaine S stand, which I also remember seeing.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:08pm Sugarfly Waterloo:

I actually had no idea the grammies were on. I am amused that Mumford and Sons is this years Arcade Fire
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:14pm kat330:

No discussions on food yet I noticed. This is sure the week for it. Last night was a Chinese menu, tomorrow night will be Jambalaya, and probably broiled yellowfin tuna for Valentine's Day. What's anyone else doing for this week of holidays?
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:18pm kat330:

I so adore Veloso's "Ile Aiye."
  Mon. 2/11/13 1:19pm fritz da silva:

millenium is a famous brazilian collection, not an album per se.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:25pm Parq:

By the way, Stritch's reading of that song is grating, and I didn't like it either, when I first saw it on GADM back in the day. Decades later, I saw a production of "Company" and dug the context of that song, and Stritch's approach finally made sense to me.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:27pm Irene Trudel:

I'm kind of fond of Elaine's abrasive vocal on that. Come to think of it, all her vocals tend to be abrasive, but that's what I love about her.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:31pm Parq:

Irene, I suspect, that aspect of her singing is what got her cast in "Company" in the first place, as it perfectly fits with the character she played.
  Mon. 2/11/13 1:36pm Mark:

"Would you believe it? I have a cold." The nuttiest nuthouse of a song ever. Great stuff.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:36pm kat330:

@Sean: Sent you my email through the FS procedure -- first time trying that -- because I've rotated your upside down photos and can email those righted files to you if interested. Otherwise you can probably find a simple program, like Windows Photo Viewer, to do that for yourself.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:37pm Jeff:

When I was a silly kid, Stritch's rendition of _Ladies who Lunch_ (and in particular her apparently casual relationship with the melody) really bugged me. I've since come to love her as the treasure she is, and she can pretty much do no wrong as far as I'm concerned.

Add yeah, her style works great for the Joanne character.

I got to see her _At Liberty_ show a few years back, and she told a bunch of stories which put her career in focus.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:40pm kat330:

Jelly Roll!! :)
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:44pm Looms:

Hi! Real nice set.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:45pm kat330:

Yes, Snake + NOLA, two birds with one band.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:46pm Parq:

<<When I was a silly kid * * * I've since come>

Jeff, exactly.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 1:50pm kat330:

Well, I'm off. Gotta dig into some tax paperwork. Still listening.
Thanks, Irene, for a typically fine show today!
  Mon. 2/11/13 1:58pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Kat, thanks for that
  Mon. 2/11/13 2:04pm don:

Chick Corea on this Miles track; this band never recorded in studio. Still sounds years ahead of its time, 44 years later.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:09pm nickybones:

Jesus...that was incredible.
  Mon. 2/11/13 2:14pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Folks, got to go, thanks for a terrific show, Irene, have a great week, everyone.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:15pm Van in DC:

I've been listening in but not monitoring the comments. See ya later Sean & kat! Sounding great as always on this end, Irene!
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:38pm tomB:

Maids of Cadiz was on MILES AHEAD. What constituted newly discovered? Because it was a totally different arrangement?
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:43pm Irene Trudel:

I think that was the case here. It's on an album of newly discovered works.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Also listening in quietly for a couple hours--great music as ever for rainy, dreary Mondays, thanks Irene!

Have a good Shrove Monday/Fasching everyone! Eat some d'ohnuts! :)
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Anthony Haden-Guest! Must be in the Christopher Guest family.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Yep, older half-brother of Christopher, Lord Tufnel-Haden-Guest.
Avatar    Mon. 2/11/13 2:59pm Van in DC:

Hi Matt! Yep a dreary day today here. This was the National Monument during my walk today
